Jake Paul was kicked out from his courtside seats during LA Lakers' game vs Atlanta Hawks following a LeBron James dunk.
Many fans get excited when they see the basketball legend maraud down the court and execute a dunk to perfection, but the YouTube star appeared to get a little too carried away.
During the game against the Atlanta Hawks after James' breakaway dunk, the YouTuber-turned-boxer leapt from his seat and began to bring attention to himself before security escorted him out of the arena.
Lakers writer Bill Oram tweeted: "After LeBron's breakaway dunk put the Lakers up by 18, Jake Paul sprung up from his courtside seat in a lime green puffy vest, twirled like a ballerina, then mimicked a home run swing.
"Security gently ushered him off the playing surface."

The Lakers triumphed 134-118 over the Hawks to secure their fourth straight win.
James registered 32 points, 9 assists and 8 rebounds as the 2020 NBA champions secured an important victory as they look to turn their season around.
Their record now stands at 21 wins and 19 losses and sit sixth in the Western Conference.
Paul kicked off 2022 with a bang and he certainly has plans to get back in the boxing ring again.
He warned rivals his career is only "just starting" after being named the Breakout Boxer of the Year by Sports Illustrated magazine.
The YouTuber fought three times in 2021, stopping Ben Askren in February before outpointing another MMA fighter, ex-UFC star Tyron Woodley, in September.
Last month, he was due to finally settle a long-standing feud with Tommy Fury, which would have represented his first bout with a full-time boxer, only for the Englishman to withdraw citing a rib injury and bacterial chest infection.
That prompted Woodley to step in for a rematch at little over a week's notice, and again it was Paul who prevailed, lighting up a dour fight with a stunning right hand to score a knockout win.
"Less than 2 years ago I made my professional debut after having 1 amateur fight that lasted 5 rounds and now today, I won Sports Illustrated Breakout Boxer of the year.” he said.
"They told me I couldn't become a real boxer because I was a 'YouTuber' and that nobody would take me seriously. I laughed right back.
"People have doubted me my whole life. It's nothing new. In this generation you have to show people what you can do. They won't believe it until it's right in front of their mindless eyes."
